Karl was one of ten candidates competing for the three openings. He will join Petar M. Djurić from Stony Brook University and Sergios Theodoridis from the University of Athens in Greece when they take their new seats on January 1, 2011.

“I’m proud to be representing both my area of research and Boston University as a member of the Signal Processing Board,” Karl said.

The Board of Governors oversees the activities of the SPS and is responsible for establishing and implementing policy as well as receiving reports from its standing boards and committees.

The SPS, established in 1948 as IEEE’s first society, is made up of signal processing scientists and professionals. The organization is committed to providing high quality publications, conferences, technical and educational activities, and leadership opportunities in order to keep its members current on the latest information regarding the generation, transformation, and interpretation of information.
